    What a douche bag. I'm sure all our conservaposse bros will leap to Rush's defense.

    Rush LimbaughSandusky has to be -- he's a gay guy. Nobody's mentioning that aspect, because it's just too dangerous. Nah, not pedophiles, but I do think it's the elephant in the room that is never -- it's not called a homosexual problem or scandal or -- see there -- and the reason, there's a very powerful political gay movement, and it's oriented towards supporting the Democrat Party.

    Limbaugh is scum, like everybody on the fringe right. We know he's a pill popping racist. He's probably also a closet case, as well as a pea-brained idiot.

    Rush hasn't been "rushed" by a gang of militant gays yet? That's rather surprising...

    Seriously? Limbaugh made it very clear that Sandusky does not represent gay people just like heterosexual criminals don’t represent all heterosexuals. He also said that not every gay person represents a predator just like not every man represents a predator.

    Why would you twist this to make it look like he was saying something anti-gay?

    Because pedophiles are different - we don't think of an adult guy who goes after little girls as "straight," but as a pedophile. But I think you know that already.

    I know that but the caller was putting an emphasis on that particular fact so Limbaugh was acknowledging that yes, the guy is technically a gay pedophile.

    And I say not he's not, any more than an adult guy who goes after little girls is a "straight" pedophile.

    You must ave a very odd definition of "very clear."

    Limbaugh complaining that the Sandusky affair is considered a pedophile problem rather than a "homosexual problem or scandal" is obviously anti-gay homophobia. No amount of right-wing spin can change that.

    Exactly. And to further argue that some gay mafia prevented Sandusky from being called "gay" is ridiculous.

    If anything, the media has soft-balled what Sandusky did by calling it "sexual abuse" instead of forcible anal rape on a 10-year-old.

    Anyone who does that is not a gay man.

    No, he was saying that there's too much political correctness in terms of what he calls "the gay lobby" silencing anyone who merely points out the fact that sandusky is a homosexual pedophile.

    If Sandusky was a "christian minister" molesting little girls the media would have constantly emphasized his being a "christian minister", but because Sandusky is "homosexual" and molesting boys the media would never even make a passing reference to orientation.

    That's basically what he's trying to say in so many words.

    And FYI, this thread was "spun" to begin with. The fact is, he didn't really say anything anti-gay.

    You're a disgrace. The Catholic Church blamed their pedophilia scandal on gay priests and here you are carrying the water for this douche bag. "Christian minister" = "coach", not his sexuality, so your analogy is ridiculous.

    I hope you remember this when your right-wing neighbors are done attacking teachers and decide that you and your partner might be "gay pedophiles" since you're all too willing to conflate the two. icon_twisted.gif

    First of all, there is no "gay lobby" or "gay mafia." Those are also homophobic terms used by right-wingers to drum up fear and thus hatred of gays as some powerful, secretive "other" plotting and conspiring against the traditional order. Fearmongering, hateful nonsense.

    Certainly, there is no "gay lobby" surpressing mention of Sandusky's sexuality. To begin, nobody knows what Sandusky's sexual orientation is. He could be gay, straight, or bi. Or he may be asexual and only sexually interested in children.

    I don't know. You don't know. Limbaugh doesn't know. He assumed Sandusky is gay because he is a homophobe who automatically associates pedophilia with homosexuality. It is nakedly anti-gay rhetoric and will be recognized as such by 99% of the people who hear it.

    What if Sandusky was a "Christian minister"? Who cares? He's not. What he is, is a pedophile. Try to stay on topic.

    Every time I see him I think of a skewer going through his dead body and watching it rotate over a fire while his eyes slip out and his fat drips into the flames.

    I hope that's not too harsh.

    Every single person who covered up and enabled Sandusky's ongoing abuse was STRAIGHT.
    But somehow now it's gay people's fault. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Don't tell that to the homophobic, ignorant Limbaugh -- or the self-loathing gays who defend his anti-gay fear mongering.

    You are missing the big picture in your crusade against political correctness. Labeling him a "gay" pedophile will cause all sorts of ramifications. For example, gay male teachers that have male students. I use this as an example because this happened to a male colleague. He was gay. The mother moved her child to another classroom because she thought that the gay teacher would molest her son and corrupt him. She told the new female teacher this because she didn't think that she would tell her colleagues. This was just two years ago.

    Basically, I disagree with Limbaugh on this issue because people shouldn't be equating pedophilia to a particular orientation period, but don't exaggerate it into some anti-gay tirade.

    It was already an anti-gay tirade. Limbaugh himself did that, not anybody else. With no proof at all about Sandusky's sexual orientation, Limbaugh complained that the Sandusky affair is considered a pedophile scandal instead of a "homosexual" scandal. Limbaugh therefore assumed that because Sandusky is a pedophile he is gay; not only that, he wants others to assume the same.

    That's obviously homophobic, and no amount right-wing spinning is going to change that.
